Brandenburg's using too much energy

Ways we can conserve energy

Lights & Equipment

  • Turn off lights, projectors, ELMOs when you are not using them.
  • Hibernate computers when not in use.
  • Have a Techy turn off the computers everyday.
  • Only use one light switch if working after hours.
  • Turn off copiers/printers at end of the day.

    Make the least amount of copies possible :)

Heating, A/C & Water

  • In the warm months the A/C should be set to 78 during school hours and outside of school hours turn it off.
  • In the cold months the heat should be set to 70 during school hours and outside of school hours turn it off.
  • Keep doors and windows shut when the A/C is running.
  • In the bathroom use water only as needed, do NOT leave it running.

Office, Custodial, and Specials Faculty

  • Mechanical equipment and water faucets are checked regularly for problems, reported and fixed quickly.
  • Turn Hallway lights off when students leave at the end of the day.
  • Only open the refrigerator and freezer doors when needed.
  • Turn off the loudspeaker when not in use.
